Lovin' On Mom

It's taken me several days.....but I finally got a set of Mother's Day cookies finished. Phewwww..... "What's up with all the interruptions?! I NEED to decorate cookies, people.....can't you see how important this is?" Just kidding. Family comes first......well.....most of the time. :)

I decided to try making several groupings of cookies to give away as a sets for Mother's Day. There's so many different themes that can be used for Mother's Day. I'll show you in a day or two how I packaged these. I had a blast!

First.....my monthly order of cuppies for the preschool department at church. I wanted to change it up some and do them a bit different.


Birdhouses.....these were supposed to go in a grouping.....but I ended up being DONE before the rest of the group got decorated. Maybe some of you cookiers know what I'm talking about. The decorating session was fun.....but then suddenly......boom.....I'm done. No more cookies. That's when I take the remaining cookies and blob icing on top of them and offer them to my family. lol They love it!


Small pink set.....


Tea time in the garden.....See those lovely tea cups with the swirly blobs and that pitiful Happy Mothers Day cookie.....that's right before the "Boom.....I'm done!" happened. lol


The gardening set.....


More pink with lots of black.....


Red and black.....


And probably my fave.....although I love the one just above this one too.


Stay tuned for packaging. I took the plunge and ordered some special boxes. Yikes.....FIFTY boxes are sitting here in front of me. :O/

HOW did you do the cutest little bow on that shoe??? I am so inspired, I have some baby carriages that will post in a day or two....I was thinking of your cookies the whole time! Thanks for sharing your icing recipe, you have converted me from royal.

I had a typo, so I deleted and reposted!

So cute as always Pam! I'm still trying to figure out why my cookies are spreading and not keeping a nice shape. Went to my neighborhood cake decorating shop yesterday and they gave me their recipe and told me they use a high ratio cake flour that works great! Woo-hoo! I bought some and I'm gonna give it a try, hope I have some success! Take care, Dora

Ooh I can't wait to see the packaging, I love pretty packaging! The cookies all look great. I'm with you on the red and black sets, so pretty!
I laughed at your "boom.. I'm done". Yes, there comes a point and suddenly the creative energy is just gone!
